Hasan Salihamidzic hopes Serge Gnabry chooses Bayern Munich stay despite links to Liverpool and Arsenal
Liverpool have had an interest in Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry recently, and the German star could be on the move in the near future.
Speaking to SkyDe via Fabrizio Romano (h/t Liverpool Echo), Bayern Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic admitted that there is a possibility that Gnabry could leave the Bavarians- but he hopes that he opts in favour of a stay at his current club.
“We really want to keep him. I hope that he chooses Bayern. If a player doesn’t want to decide for the club, then we can find a solution that makes everyone happy.”
Gnabry has also been linked with a return to Arsenal, where he played between 2012 and 2016, but the prospect of playing Champions League football with us makes Liverpool a brighter prospect for him.
A wise addition?
Sadio Mane has just sealed a move to the Bundesliga champions and that could impact Gnabry’s playing time. Those who have followed Bayern in recent years would know that alongside playing as a winger, the German has often played down the middle in attack.
That is a similar case for Mane, who has played across the frontline during his time at LFC. The 26-year-old faces a crucial point in his career, with his contract set to enter its final 12 months.
He is in his prime years and it remains to be seen what decision he reaches. Bayern are the dominant force in Germany and Gnabry gets good playing time there, having appeared in 45 games across all competitions last season.

He scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists during that time, showing that he has the ability to make a tangible contribution at whichever club he plays for. With Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino’s contract situations still unresolved, the Stuttgart-born attacker won’t be a bad option to have at Anfield.
